Bike parking is provided free of charge at various SPT Subway and Bus stations throughout Strathclyde. Please see the Bike Parking Terms & Conditions prior to using these facilities.

Any bikes left overnight at the bike parking facilities may, at the sole discretion of SPT, be moved to safe storage for a period of two weeks to allow the owner to come forward and claim the bike.

These Conditions of Travel form the contract between Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and its customers for travel on the Subway and/or car parking at SPT’s car parks.

The byelaws help SPT to make sure that travelling on the Subway is easy, safe, secure and comfortable.

SPT has introduced a temporary ban on all lithium-ion powered micro devices until further data is collated on the safe operation and travel of devices or once formal legislation comes into effect. 

The ban includes all lithium-ion powered micro devices such as:

  • e-scooters
  • e-unicycles
  • e-hoverboards
  • e-skateboards

Banning lithium-ion powered micro devices in subway environments is a crucial step towards ensuring the safety and security of commuters, reducing the likelihood of potential accidents, and preventing disruptions to Subway operations.
